Harvest Recognized Among Top Private Companies in Clean Technology for the Sixth Year in a Row

WALTHAM, MASS. (January 26, 2016) – Harvest Power, Inc., a leader in organics management solutions, today announced it was named to the 2015 Global Cleantech 100, a recognition it has received in each of the last six years. The Global Cleantech 100, produced by Cleantech Group, recognizes private companies that demonstrate the most innovative and promising ideas in clean technology and are best positioned to make the most significant market impact.

This year, a record number of nominations were received for the Global Cleantech 100, including 6,900 companies from 60 countries. The 100-member expert panel that selected the final list was drawn from leading financial investors and representatives of multi-national corporations and industries active in technology and innovation scouting across Asia, Europe, and North America.

“The Global Cleantech 100 provides us with insight into the collective opinion of key market players on which megatrends and innovation companies are most likely to have a significant impact in the next 5-10 years,” said Michele Parad, Senior Manager at Cleantech Group and lead author of the Global Cleantech 100 Report. “Now in its 7th year, the Global Cleantech 100 program reveals which themes are staying relevant and which sectors are taking center stage.”

Harvest Power creates a more sustainable future by helping communities across North America better manage and beneficially re-use their organic waste through the production of renewable energy, soils, mulches and natural fertilizers. Harvest has grown rapidly since its founding in 2008, garnering awards for its business of organic recycling, energy generation and soil revitalization. The company has received Bloomberg’s 2013 New Energy Pioneer Award and was named one of Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World for 2014.
